iFixit has been busy again with their screwdrivers, and have published a detailed dismantling of the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight Technology, revealing its inner magic for all to see.
The Nook Simple Touch is the latest e-book reader from Barnes & Noble, and is equipped with their GlowLight technology that allows you to continue reading with the lights out.
After removing the 16-level grayscale 6 inch 600 x 800 pixel E-Ink touchscreen, iFixit examined the light technology Barnes & Noble had used:
“The display assembly contains the front glass, digitizer, and array of GlowLight LEDs, all fused together into one component. The glass over the E-ink screen takes the light from the eight LEDs and evenly distributes it across the screen.”
You can view the complete teardown over on the iFixit website.
